a poet goes to Bonsai Expo (1)

bonsai series - (#1)

by Leineco

                             bonsai discipline
                             conjures persistence of wind;
                                       sculpted eloquence

Just some thoughts to ponder :-)

1) Interestingly, the word discipline, in this poem can be read as
either a noun or chose :-)

.. discipline
...(noun) - school of thought, branch of knowledge, set or system of
... rules and regulations
(i.e. she is schooled in the Freudian Discipline
... of psychiatry

...(verb) - to train or condition to act in accordance with rules and/or
... systems
(i.e. his military training included disciplining both his mind
... and body

2) eloquence
- usually we think in terms of language/speaking/oration,
when we see/hear this word, but while I was taking in the "windswept"
category of bonsai, I could not help but think about "other" forms of
communicating (i.e. the language of flowers, the language of art. etc.)
